Volcom

Sales Associate

July - August 2018 • Folsom, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the companies mission and work environment! I loved working in a retail setting, but also really enjoyed my boss' retail philosophy. He really challenged us to engage with customers in order to buy our products to establish rapport instead of only talking about coupons/deals.

What I wish was different

The location was slightly far from my house, therefore the commute was longer than expected.

Advice

Be willing to be sociable, try new things, and stay motivated when the store is empty or full of customers.

Product Imagery Intern

June - August 2017 • Costa Mesa, CA

What I liked

Great company culture, and friendly people. I was always excited to show up the next day! There was always something going on at the office, especially since it was summer. I also learned a lot of techniques on Photoshop, and about retouching images. It was great experience working on the corporate end of things.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was full time, I had a max of 180 hours for the summer.

Advice

Put your best foot forward everyday, because Volcom loves to hire people who have interned for them before. Be respectful, and don't be discouraged if there are days where you aren't learning a bunch.
